    I opened tonights post in the semi dark and when opening the envelope as the flap/glue interface came unstuck it gave off a blue glow.

    Has anyone noticed this before?

    By sticking it back together I was able to get it to do it again so it wasn't my imagination.

    Yep, and I saw pink elephants when cycling back from the local. The world is soooo colourful. :biggrin:

    It's pretty amazing.

    Pulling cellotape off a roll quickly generates flashes of light in the dark.

    It kept me occupied for quite a while until I ran out of tape.

    So thats the envelope sorted, presumably the pink elephants are just boring old DT's? :stop:

    I think you need to get out more.

    Now then, how did you find the edge of the cellotape in the dark?

    I wonder how much my lady would appreciate coming home in a day or so to a house with no sellotape..

    Excellent! Thanks Ohnovino and Vernon.

    I've checked three rolls of sellotape and a roll of packing tape. Only one worked - magic tape.

    Sugar and teaspoon in a glass didn't work.

    I do need to get out more.

    Sellotape didn't work for me either. Maybe I need to try a pitch-black room.

    If you rub a balloon really hard, it will stick to your jumper without being held.

    Hold the rubbed balloon near a gentle stream of water and watch the water deflect towards the balloon. This is static electricity though a different phenomenon to sparky tape in the dark things.
